ACC Flu Shot Clinics 2019

Flu season is just around the corner, and ACC hopes to help you avoid the high fevers, fatigue, muscle aches, and severe headaches. Getting a flu shot also protects those around you such as infants, seniors, and those with weakened immune systems who are more vulnerable to getting the flu. So, roll up your sleeve and Sign up for your flu shot at the ACC Flu Shot Clinic on your campus!

Register here to book your visit!  Priority will be given to those with appointments, but there still may be a short wait.  Walk-ins may be accepted as time and supplies permit.  To expedite this check-in process, please be sure to have your BCBS Insurance Card AND your Driver’s License.

***Round Rock will be having a flu shot clinic as well on October 14th from 11am-1pm in room 3105 through the Health Sciences Department.

B12 shots will also be available upon request for $20 if you are interested.  This year’s flu shots are quadrivalent, meaning they protect against four different strains of flu and are preservative-free.  To learn more about flu shots in general or read up on facts and myths, please review information on the Centers for Disease Control’s website HERE.  You are also encouraged to consult your doctor if you have any questions or concerns pertaining to your personal health.

Fall 2019 Exercise Classes

A new academic year is upon us!  Human Resources hopes you will get back into a good workout routine this fall.  One way to get started is with the Employee Wellness Program fall exercise classes.  Sign up HERE for a class that works for you!

These classes are FREE to all Faculty, Adjunct Faculty and staffing table employees at ACC. You may sign up for classes at any campus, but make sure you get prior approval from your supervisor. Space is limited and spots are open until filled, so be sure to sign up!

If you want even more options for exercise classes, don’t forget you can use your Tuition Vouchers to sign up for classes through Continuing Education or Kinesiology as well.  We also offer a couple of discounted fitness membership options for full-time ACC employees, if you’re interested.

ACC hosts inaugural Employee Wellness-Fest 2019

On Friday, April 26th, ACC hosted the inaugural Employee Wellness-Fest 2019!

Nearly 200 employees came together to celebrate wellness across the district with field day games, exercise demos, health and wellness information tables, and even a new campus competition, the Campus Wellness Cup.  Smiling faces were seen throughout the Eastview courtyard as employees were able to get in some physical wellness, engage with their peers from the different campuses and strengthen those bonds between colleagues.

Dr. Richard Rhodes presented the Exercise Stars awards as a part of the event recognizing the top 3 overall individuals from each fitness level, as well as the top 3 Campuses with the most minutes.  Wellness Champions from each ACC campus helped put this event together and the Eastview Campus staff worked especially hard to prepare for the big day!  Finally, 19 vendors from both the college and the community came out for the event to provide information regarding services related to employee wellness.  Several of these vendors, as well as many other local businesses provided wonderful prizes to be won as well.

Congratulations to the Eastview Campus for taking home the first ever ACC Campus Wellness Cup!

Which campus will be ready to capture this honor next year and take home this fantastic trophy at the Wellness-Fest 2020?  Yes…we are looking forward to the opportunity to repeat this event again next year, and hope you will be sure to join us again then!

 

Here are a few pictures from the event, but you can view all pictures in the Photo Gallery!
